In a world that's becoming "smart," it is only fitting that the technology that protects your home also becomes safe. From alarms to cameras, you can give either your home, office building or wherever you want a protection upgrade. Something that you may overlook when it comes to your safety is a carbon monoxide detector. And yes, they're smart too. A smart carbon monoxide detector includes features that give you the best quality of life with ease, including being able to check carbon monoxide levels on your phone and sufficient battery life. While many carbon monoxide detectors are advancing with the times, you want to make sure to choose the best ones for your needs. Here are some smart carbon monoxide detectors you should be aware of when you make your next purchase.
Google Nest Protect 2nd Generation
This smoke detector/carbon monoxide detector combo is the tag team you didn't know you needed. The efficient Google Nest Protect 2nd Generation allows you to test the alarm from your phone and then sends you a full report once the test is complete. If you go a while without testing it, you'll be notified. If the battery is running low, this detector will also notify you when it's time to switch them out.
Because it's a Google Nest product, you'll be able to connect the whole Google Nest family, making it very easy for you to control everything all under one app.
The device connects to the entire Google Nest Family where you can control all your smart devices in one app. Most importantly, if there's an emergency, the device will automatically notify 9-1-1, including when you're not home, so you'll never have to worry about leaving your home unoccupied.
Kidde Nighthawk Carbon Monoxide Detector
The Kidde Nighthawk Carbon Monoxide Detector might be the easiest one to install and read, which is perfect for those not looking for something too high-tech. You simply plug it in, and that's it! Not only is it easy, but it's dependable and accurate. Once installed, the digital display is easy-to-read and tells you your current carbon monoxide levels. It also features a button that tells you the highest level of carbon monoxide in your home. No longer want it in a specific room? No problem! You can unplug and re-install it elsewhere thanks to its battery backup.
First Alert Onlelink Safe & Sound
Another carbon monoxide detector/smoke detector duo, the First Alert Onelink Safe & Sound has plenty of smart features to add to your smart home. This specific detector model has a built-in Alexa and Bluetooth speaker, so you can ask it questions, just like you would with your normal speaker. And, to amp up the excitement of this device, you can even play music! If you're walking around the house at night, a light will help guide your way.
Furthermore, this device can send push notifications right to your phone, so you'll always be notified of all that goes on with your speaker/detector.
